a note of caution. the same spirit of cooperation and focus that has gotten us to this point with one will be an overwhelming vote i hope is unanimous. we need to keep going so that this isn't a casualty of the back and forth process in the house and senate. the senate played a large role in giving it in the first place. we need to make sure that it is not caught up in the larger dramas that occur around here that we can keep our eye on the ball and fix it. and i do want to say just one brief word about the pay for. it is illusory because it would cost far more than we would ever collect but we have to deal with the rules as they are. there are two proposals. one would tighten eligibility for the health care reform. the other would take away some unnecessary tax benefits to large oil companies that long ago ceased to have any impact on oil exploration or reducing price. but while i actually think the pay for from our side of the aisle dealing with the oil tax adjustment is superior, i think it is a practical matter. we are going to have to do both of these in the months ahead if we ar
agencies they may look and go, oh, this cloud is outside the u.s. perhaps i don't want to use it for one of my applications, but i can use it for another one. different agencies and even within an agency you have different needs. so to answer the question, for the cloud today i don't think that you're going to see any classifieded information because that's not included in the profile, and it might be a long time before that's coming. you won't see high-risk systems, systems that could endanger an agency if compromised. but there's a lot of low-risk and moderate-risk systems today that can be moved to the cloud. an organization that is involved in cybersecurity or information that's involved in federal government planning, they may decide to either keep it in house or use it in a cloud within the u.s. whereas an organization or a federal agency that's supporting workers all over the globe may want to use a cloud that's all over the globe recognizing they're making a choice, and they can see the risks they're documents. so i think we'll see low and moderate-risk operations moving. >> host
of cloud computing by the u.s. government. a member of congress who just held a hearing on the topic and an internet executive discuss the benefits and challenges of the government's easing toward cloud computing. >> host: dan lungren is chairman of the homeland security subcommittee on cybersecurity, he is a republican of california, and this week his subcommittee held a hearing on cloud computing. congressman lungren is our guest this week on "the communicators." congressman, is cloud computing for the federal government inevitable? >> guest: it not only is inevitable, it's already part of the mix and one of the serious concerns i have is not that it's inevitable, but the fact that we insure that the security aspects of cloud computing are forecast, are dealt with ahead of time and are incorporated into this new, this new computer world. i mean, cloud computing is part of the new computer world. >> host: jennifer martinez of politico is a technology reporter, she's also joining us this week on "the communicators." >> host: thank you. and the hearing was focused on, like you said, t
to take their information that is being processed by a cloud service provider and use it internally or to another provider should the need arise. >> is there anything technologically unique about cloud computers that cause more difficulty with this particular concern? that is termination of services? >> not on the technical side but i would echo that one of the big concerns about moving to the public cloud is exactly that and we want to be able to assure continuity of service to our customers and all of that so we have to work those scenarios and to what happened in the unlikely event that the cloud service provider can no longer offer that service so they have capabilities having standards set. this is something fist is working on for cloud interoperable is so we can quickly shift to another cloud service provider if necessary. >> clout and interoperable leawood presume that you would have equal security measures. >> that goes back to the idea of having provisional authorization in place for hopefully many providers so that that makes it much easier for us to have a choice and be a
-- authorizing operations designed to capture and kill bin laden he was not the first u.s. president to do so. in response the august 1998 african embassy bombing president clinton's sided cruise missiles at a qaeda training camps to kill bin laden and authorize the use of lethal force if necessary to capture the saudi terrorist. moreover bin laden was not the first individual singled out as a strategic objective a u.s. military campaign. on may 3, 1886 more than a century before 25 million-dollar reward would be offered for information on bin laden's whereabouts. the u.s. house of representatives introduced a joint resolution quote authorizing the president to offer an award of $25,000 for the killing or capture of geronimo. 30 years later in response to poncho via's raid across the mexican border into columbus new mexico in march 1916, president woodrow wilson announced quote, a force will be sent at once and pursued with a single objective of capturing him and putting a stop to his forays. within hours of the 1989 invasion of panama of a administration of george h. w. bush declared that th
treasury will pursue investigations using the tools and how you verify the banks have voluntarily withdrawn from iran and do not reverse course. >> thank you, mr. chairman. let me begin by describing the effort that we have been undertaken and how that has resulted in what we have seen is a dramatic reduction in iran's access to the international financial system. dating back before fasada the treasury department was active in going out to the international financial community, the private sector, as well as government officials around the world, and explaining the case for why they should voluntarily withdraw from the iranian financial sector, in particular the designated iranian banks, banks sanctioned for involvement in iran's proliferation activities and its support for terrorism. we were making good progress in isolating iran in limiting the number of banks around the world that were willing to do business, particularly with designated iranian banks. the number of banks, turkly in europe, that will willing to continue to do business with iran were reducing iran's ability to a

in rather than go through a long introduction about the importance of privacy and security. some of us were here last year and sought a lengthy and informative panel about privacy. a lot has changed over the course of the year. we have seen security incidents and interest on capitol hill. we have seen a lot happening in the private space from new bills to new efforts on the part of industry to respond to consumer concerns. how much have the landscape change in the last year? where do you see things going in washington? >> it is great to be here to see everybody. i think a lot of progress has been made by the business community in developing tools to give transparency and choice to consumers and explain to them all the benefits of the use of personalization and information after the information agents. the effort i am most closely associated with is the digital advertising alliance which is an effort remember of the leading trade associations in the united states, direct marketing association, association of national advertisers, network advertising initiative and many others developed princ
in order to prevent irreversible harm to the climate. to help us make that transition there's no shortage of water and sewage pipe lines that need to be fixed or replaced bridges and tunnels in need of emergency repairs and transportation infrastructure that needs to be renewed and developed. there are jobs that can be created in the energy conservation and upgrading the grid maintaining and expanding public transportation. jobs that can help us reduce air pollution coming greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy efficiency. it's past time for major new deal type public investments in infrastructure modernization and repair, energy conservation and climate protection as a means of putting people to work and leaving the foundation for a more sustainable economic future for the united states. this is just sound science and sound economics. increasing our reliance on the tar sands would take us in the opposite direction. thank you.

, the u.s. chamber of commerce, and the brookings institution discussed the role of the u.s. government and the imf, and the implications for the u.s. economy. this is two hours. >> hearing today is on the year zone debt crisis and implications to the united states. ask unanimous consent mr. lynn of massachusetts and mr. greene from texas both members of the financial services committee can silt in with the must members of the subcommittee today for purposes of delivering a testimony and asking the witnesses questions today. we limit time to 10 minute, and i recognize myself for as much time as i might consume. today we're focused on the eurozone debt crisis and impact on the u.s. economy. despite the systems, the e.u., international monetary fund, imf, greece, portugal, and italy plunged into the deep this year. the economies show sign of strain. in the past year, there's a series of credit rating downgrades for many e.u. members following the grounds of stress tests on important european banks. these rating agencies warned about the risks associated with the global connectedness of ba
between most u.s. states that show a large expansion of mortgage credit than those that secretly had large mortgage delinquencies, a link between housing booms and bustss in the u.s. that coincided with financial leverage. they also had the highest leverage meaning the households herbart average ratios. how to think about preventing real-estate booms, via idea that we would like to prevent those and the policy areas that we think about monetary policy with the u. s presentation and argued the underlying conference and government policies. fixing monetary policies to deal with an isolated boom may be too costly because there are some things that hit the entire economy rather events specific sectors. something to keep in mind before using it. and something that was emphasized especially in the latin american crisis but the best size is to think of real space. many countries including the u.s. are favorites of equity with policies in place with mortgage and the number of countries with policies in place, something to think about or how to do with these measures. at the same time, that was one
in the insurance government, fisheries, and forest sector. the u.s. starts green buildings in china. my question is is the investment bank ceos working diligently to launch these securities all got fired because of the credit crisis, and do you have thoughts on how to get their attention again at the banks? >> i'm not spending a lot of time on banks these days, and i think what you need to ask is not so much -- i think you can assume that banks will be involved when there's a real demand and the proper incentives, and so when we start looking at green buildings or all series of other environmentally fiesht products, i think what you need to do is let's just start with government policies. i think you need proper government policy, and i think that companies need to hear from their investors, from their customers, from their employers, and i think that's why most major companies do these sorts of things they do when they do positive things that have a beneficial impact on the environment, and they think it's good business, and i think that -- and i think markets develop when there's a demand and
-explanatory. [laughter] >> you can make a little fun of this, but it is incredibly useful. if you condense it down to 150 words on what you try to achieve, people have more sense of what's going on. if you want to say it's absolutely fine that people don't know what they are voting for, that's fine for him, but i'm not happy with that. i wanted to talk about the ongoing pie lots in the public bill committee stage that's permissive allowing members to make statements about amendments 23 they wish. what we need to do is make those pilots permanent and so they are enabled to make statements to the whole house and at the report stage. it begs to relief a government that wants a healthier democracy was so negative in the committee's recommendation of the statement on the floor of the house. why is the government blocking this simple move seeking to make sure they are not rubber stamper legislation and prevent the government's sneaking things throw the report stage. the government tries to use the low take up of the bill committee pilot to change the status quo on the floor of the house, but that doesn't stand
these agreements because this -- quote -- "increased the revenue that will help us meet increased expenses and help us ensure our family farm will be there to pass on to my kids," according to to her who she said would be the sixth generation of farmers in her family. barbara wilson noted that agriculture fuels the economy in our small town of mexico, missouri. she told me that the passage of these free trade agreements would lead to an increased demand for our corn, soybeans and stressed that when the agricultural economy is good, the economy in our small town benefits. and that means increased jobs in all sectors of that small-town economy. brian hammonds in stockton, missouri, told me significant government trade barriers are hurting his attempts to compete and develop markets for american black walnuts which are harvested by hand in missouri and other midwestern states. brian noted that if these trade deals pass, our company could buy more black walnuts from thousands of people in missouri and 11 other states providing cash to those rural areas. and even more importantly, the increased producti
that crosses our desk on a daily basis that teaches us really what we are -- adversaries may be are thinking about. technologies or other capacities they really do have and what do we need to do to and large or maximize our ability to prevent something from occurring and our ability to respond and recover as quickly as possible. those things are happening simultaneously. lastly -- the department of homeland security has been the largest reorganization of the federal government since the creation of the department of defense. it has been immense. it is not until you are in it that you realize how our immense it actually is. as that reorganization has occurred it impacts other participants in the so-called interagency because for example the department of homeland security has a huge international footprint and we are negotiating international agreements all the time and we have people stationed in 75 countries around the world today. that culture which is relatively post 9/11 where ministers of the interior, homeland security secretary have their own international pathways to communicate and

deeply to us here in the united states because our country has no bigger more important economic relationship than we have with europe. while the direct exposure of the u.s. financial system to the most vulnerable countries in europe is limited, we have substantial trade and investment tries with europe and european stability matters greatly for american exporters and for american jobs. already the crisis has slowed growth significantly in europe and around the world as increased uncertainty and red e reduced risk appetite, undermine business and consumer confidence and reduced household wealth. there are downside risk to the outlook for the u.s. economy and job creation. it is vitally important to the united states that europe is able to address its issues effectively and in a timely fashion. for this reason the administration has closely engaged with european leaders to encourage them to move forward in an effective way. at the same time, our supervisors have for some time been working closely with the u.s. financial institutions to identify risks and to improve their ability
isn't the only way to talk about what racism looks like. it isn't useful. i think what's more useful is to get people to think about the ways in which we perpetuate the racial differentiations and inequalities on purpose or inadvertently that produce differences that we see every day. unless you're going to tell me there's some hard-wired reason why people of color and academic institutions are always the people serving you food or cleaning the bathroom or not necessarily in the classroom teaching classes, then i think you're going to have to be honest with yourself about all the ways there's a privilege that accrues to people. we need to recognize that race is more subliminal, more subjective and more subtle in the contemporary moment. and i think we need to find a way to really articulate that subtlety because there are or very few smoking guns, thank god, anymore. i asked my 105 interview wees what is the most racist thing that ever happened to you. the response i received most often was indicate i have of modern racism. the answer is unknowable. aaron mcgruder said, i'd imagine i

shanker and eric schmitt look at how the u.s. government has been fighting al qaeda since 2005, the year the strategy of the u.s. had been using the previous four years was change. this is just over an hour. >> good morning everyone. welcome to the miller center form. today we are thrilled to welcome thom shanker and eric schmitt to the nation's most accomplished journals covering national security and military affairs. and the authors of "counterstrike," the untold story of america's secret campaign against al qaeda. those oath of them spent roughly the last year as writers and residents of the center for new american security. thom shanker joined "the new york times" in 1997 as assistant editor and is currently a correspondent covering the pentagon and national security including efforts of transformation within the pentagon and the global campaign against terrorism. prior to joining the times mr. shankar was a foreign editor of the chicago trip and in berlin and moscow euro chi. eric schmitt is a senior writer for the nric times who has spent, who is written about the military and nat

squared is trying to build across the u.s. and this week we're going to look at some other perspectives on the issue of lightsquared, and now joining us is representative paul brown. he is the chairman of the science and technology committee. congressman brown, you recently held a hearing around lightsquared. >> guest: we did. >> host: what was that hearing about, and what did you learn? >> guest: well, peter, we have been trying to get information from lightsquared because the information we've been able to ascertain thus far is this ground-based broadband network that lightsquared wants to put in place is being fast tracked through the fcc, and this administration is pushing the fcc to approve light square lightsquared's spectrum. everything that we hear from all the experts is that this spectrum, if it's ground-based -- which it wasn't designed to be -- is going to interfere with everybody's gps in their cars, it's going to interfere, also, with the high, the highly technical gpss that science community utilizes, that the aviation community uses, that particularly the military uses. so the high p
the author of this book a hard-line, the republican party and u.s. foreign policy since world war two. professor, what is hard-line mean? >> such as the title because i think it sums up one of the main arguments in the book which is that the republican party, at least since the 1950's as that of foreign policy approach that tends to be hard line by which i mean hawkish on foreign policy, taking very seriously the idea that there are threats out there to the estates and trying to be uncompromising and face those threats. that is pretty consistent. there has also been variety in the sense of what the can -- the particular republican approach has been. quite a bit. >> well, that was my next question. sixty-seven years since the end of world war ii. about 66 and 67 years. thirty-four of those have had republican presidents. has there been a consistency among those republican presidents? >> the main consistency has been the one we just described, the idea that the u.s. is spinning days under republican presidents and having the isolationist policy since the '20s, a tendency toward a hard-l

refrained, because i don't believe anything that could be said at this hearing was going to provide us satisfactory answer as to whether there is an effort or intent to time these penalties to effect to these official hearings. so i will be sending written questions and requests for documents to provide complete answers to the question of the timing of this. the fact that the citations were two originally occurred the week of the first hearing and subsequently happened just last night before this hearing strikes me as one of extreme coincidence. perhaps it is, and i intend to find out when i asked for the requests so with that, i will dismiss the first panel and thank you very very much for coming. if there are further follow-up questions, i would ask each of you to respond in a very timely manner as you possibly can. so i dismiss the first panel and at the same time call the second panel.

will vote on the nomination of stephen a. higginson to serve as u.s. circuit judge fifth circuit. this is a seat that has been deemed by our statistics as a judicial emergency. this is the 15th judicial nomination that we will confirm this month. with this vote today, we have confirmed 51 article 3 judicial nominees during this congress. 30 of those confirmations have been for judicial emergencies. despite this brisk level of activity, we continue to hear complaints, too many complaints, unjustified complaints about the lack of real progress by the senate. let me set the record straight regarding the real progress that the senate has made. and this is in regard to president obama's judicial nominees. we have taken positive action on 87% of the judicial nominations submitted before this congress. the senate has confirmed 71% of president obama's nominees since the beginning of his presidency, including two of the most important supreme court justices. we continue to remain ahead of the pace set forth in the 108th congress under president bush. so far we have held hearings on 85% o

mannyfesto makes clear as the caller said, he isn't a christian. he uses the word christian to mean, nonislamic. it is not specifically, i don't know, black, hispanics, brown people. no, it is muslims he does not like. that's it. and yes it was very anti-muslim. he talks how he wants the jews and buddhists and all the people of europe to join with him to fight against the islam maization of europe. that is his big thing. whether or not that is connected to the insanity on some molecular level i don't know but for "the new york times" to describe him as >> this is just over an hour. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to the miller center forum. today, we're thrilled to welcome william and eric schmidt, two journalists covering military affairs, and the untold story of the america's campaign against al-qaeda. they were senior writers and residents at the senior for american security. george joined the times in 1997 and is covering the pentagon and national security, including efforts of transformation within the pentagon and gloanl campaign csh gobble campaign against terrorism. he wa
inside the white house u.s. to who. it just was not on the radar. an organization that was not well understood even though it had already carried a one attack against the world trade center towers in new york in 1993 and carried out an attack against the u.s.s. cole in human. terrorism was something happened overseas, not people in the united states aside from, of course, the tragedy in oklahoma city. the other major flaw as a reluctance to the reporting was the response to 9/11 that the government undertook. perhaps understandably that was a response, an instinctive one to use military might of the united states along with its intelligence community. basically use the approach to try and kill and capture its way to victory. the idea was, we kill enough of these fighters and kill and capture enough of its leaders that this organization will collapse and will be done with it. that was pretty much the thinking, even after the successful efforts in afghanistan with small numbers of stuff for forces troops move al qaeda out of afghanistan and take down the taliban government. that was t
of the left. and i also wanted to use something about harold meyerson. harold, for many years, was the progressive political stays at stage at the l.a. weekly. he is now the wednesday op-ed columnist for the washington post. many people know that bernie sanders is the only socialist member of the u.s. senate. fewer know, but more should know that harold meyerson is the only socialist columnist with the washington post. [applause] but that -- [inaudible] but that is not really heralds most important incarnation. he is also editor of the american prospect. here is my copy of a recent edition. the american prospect is really something. it really offers a vision of what a holistic and inclusive, progressive and most important economically just society would look like. and every issue offers a really practical political messes and tactic. we are moving in that direction. so i often pick these up at the newsstand at union station, but i'm not going to do that anymore why? because i have a present for you. here is my subscription and my subscription check. finally decided to subscrib

[applause] >> thank you. we have been over the last week celebrating or commemorating is a better term the events of the eleventh of september 2001. it was the first attack on a city or cities in the mainland of the united states since the war of 1812. it was one of the most traumatic events in the lives of many of the people here. toomey it ranks with an event i witnessed as a younger person, pearl h
't bomb us, and the latest thing now is wire. why do they hate us so much? >> well, i think to unpack your question, how do we get into their culture, i think that's impossible. the sorts of changes that you're talking about have to happen internally within the muslim world, you know, muslims themselves must decide that violent extremism carried out in the name of their great religion is something that they don't want to tolerate. should the united states and other countries in the west help that part of the world to eradicate what eric earlier described so well as the poverty of hope? of course, that's our job, all of us, to help our fellow man and woman, of course, but when you talk about getting into their culture, winning their hearts and minds, muslims find that insulting. talking about winning their hearts and minds says you have to love us and think like us, and we would not appreciate that coming from another culture. .. even as the cia has become much more adept at its targeting so that it lessens the impact on civilians, because they are very conscious of this and the notion that
of leadership, knew how to use our map, you how to spot dead areas of ground, knew how to outflank in any machine gun position. it's interesting to me to find examples of junior officers or ncos who in the mid-20th century, who would tremble or cry in combat. it's not completely unheard of to find a junior officer who might call himself when the shelling started. and who at the same time maintained a reputation for effectiveness in combat, because he was a soldier who clearly knew what he was doing and who had survived for months. that kind of reputation is just unthinkable in the 19th century. it would be impossible for a regimental captain to have found himself in front of his soldiers and still enjoy any sort of credibility as a leader. >> christopher hamner is an associate professor of history at george mason university. what you teach? >> i teach mostly american military history. >> "enduring battle: american soldiers in three wars, 1776-1945", published by the university campus press. >> you're watching the tv on c-span2. 48 hours of nonfiction authors and books every weekend. >> n
in iran, if it actually uses its bully pulpit to challenge the regime, to challenge the regime on its internal oppression it actually can encourage change and reinforces to the people inside, psychologically. when we don't do that, i think we send signals to the regime that we don't really care. some iranian diplomats who have defected have made it crystal clear to folks that when they would write their tables back home and around the americans and europeans would come and see them and to talk about only one thing. they would talk about the nuclear program. so what do those diplomats right back home? they'll care about anything else. that's a mistake. >> the thing i would add is we know how to do this propaganda. we have a history, of having to effectively. we did it somewhat effectively countering the soviet union propaganda but it does take, it does take authorities. it takes resources. and perseverance to do it. >> may i suggest it easier these days because of social networking to be even more effective. >> very much so. in my statement i said we certainly should be targeting iran
the country. in "the interrogator" he affords us the opportunity to see inside the intelligence machine in those troubling early years right after the attacks of 9/11. i will let glen tell his story a quick headline that shows it is questionable as to how much we have learned the lesson that this call from the intelligence community on a day-to-day basis. today we see reports of secretfa interrogation facilities in somalia an detainee is held for months aboard naval vessels in international waters before releasing prisoners into the judicial system. tak and of course, the guantanamo and bagram facilities are still open for business. which is important is inside in to the bureaucratic impact to take the gloves off. lead not only talkse al about the flaws of the intelligenceen case built up but how the system failed to stand up for basic principles in the face of concerted civilian political these are but aes few of the lessons we can take away from his compelling new book so let me introduce himtell briefly so he could tell you himself. glenn carle logging 33 years of servi
ambassador kirk when he first came and told us that he thought he could work with the government of korea. i told sandy and i and staff would work so hard to share with him that unless there was some relaxation of restrictions on exports of automobiles that the government would take the position they had signed, they had agreed and it was all over. because of the korean government, staffs and people working together, catching a lot of political flak at home from the korean congress, they did reopen and examine the question of these as well as automobile. automobiles. so i just want to say that having served in korea in 1950, i had no idea that this country could go out of the ashes in such a short period of time and become such a close friend of the united states in terms of democracy and trade. but certainly in terms of national security being there representing the same principles that we do. and so i do think outside of just the job creation that we are dealing with a long lasting friend. and i am just glad that we will work out the differences and able to move forward so that we both can
? is the u.s. ready to follow through on that threat? >> two issues. what do we do about the economy? how do we address the cross border threat militarily affecting part of your questions? we began to use drones successfully against some haqqani leaders. appropriately if this report is accurate i have to say that it is not allowed to confirm things that are classified. but assuming reports are accurate it seems to me over do -- it can have a real effect. secondly we have under international law the right to respond to attacks by artillery. this is what the secretary of state said, fairly soon we will see a more direct response for effective response or strong response to those attacks across the border against us. her words yesterday are pretty clear that the international effort to squeeze the network--the haqqani network on both sides of the border, quote, will be more apparent in the days ahead. the fact we have a high level, quite extraordinary visit by our officials to pakistan yesterday is the indicator of a clear statement of hope to the pakistani that they will see that it is not acc
